    Now, I'm not a person that believes in ghosts and all that supernatural stuff but I wouldn't dare to camp even a single night in a haunted forest. I know the stories are just myths but my mind would be alert focusing on ghosts and aliens instead of actually surviving. A haunted forest would take away from my concentration and that can be fatal.

    Yeah same... I would never be able to camp in a so-called haunted forest, it would ruin everything for me, even if it's all myths. I think being comfortable with your surroundings is necessary, specially if you're going to stay in the wild only by yourself. Why would someone put themselves in this terrible position? I can't picture the fun of it, being scared all night by every single noise you hear outside your tent. I know some people like adrenaline but... I don't know, it's not a kind of rush I can understand. Maybe this could be fun to do with friends but alone, sounds nothing but traumatizing.

    Come on. Most stories of haunted forests and fabula critters are originated by the fantasy of folks from the ancient times, when the only source of light were bonfires or oil lamps and the world was still kind of unknown and frigthening. Any sound emitted
    by nocturnal animals probably was the main eerie fuel of people nightmares, or anything you could imagine lingering in the shadows. However, even nowadays despite of bright LED lights everywhere and greater knowledge, Internet brought back the old days by exploiting the human fear as ever before with creepy pastas, hoaxes, fake documentaries and crafty made up images running rampant and widespread across the network and it takes just a http address of distance. Did you remember slenderman? The holders? stories of haunted videotapes, DVD or videogames catridges?.

    I suddenly remembered the movie "Blairwitch Project" with this thread. I am also a bit skeptic when it comes to ghosts and stuff but I do feel uncomfortable in unfamiliar territories most of the time especially in forests or mountains. I used to always go to the mountainous parts of my country because of medical outreach programs and sometimes I do have the feeling of being creeped out sometimes especially if the place is really very far from any village. I just try to fight the scary feeling at night and in the morning I would usually wake up thankful and relieved that I was able to survive the night. :)

    I find this a crazy stupid question that only a really feeble mind could even be considering!
    Come on now some of these threads are getting silly!

    The mind plays tricks on you a simple noise or a misshape patch of fog becomes something terrible you must overcome fear of unknow in order to survive if you cant you are in bad shape to survive. There is not a thing in the night that isnt there in the daylight

    Honestly, if I could locate such a forest it would be my home. Many people would avoid the area due to superstition and I would gain a great deal of security. This would more than provide the "mental comfort" to offset any unease.

    I'm glad for you man. I've no problems getting to sleep, but when asleep and what with the psycho-dreams I get fitful or worse. The wifer has said she's woken up with me staring at her like I was going to kill her. I can't remember waking up. I talk in my sleep. I hope I've rarely used other women's names. The wifer sez that I have. Ooops!!! The gun is on her side of the bed.

    I've never had any problems with dreams or talking in my sleep, I guess I've just got a clear conscience!!:D

    Dreams are only significant if the dreams repeat over and over.
    Then only a qualified shrink can begin to "interpret" a possible meaning.
    Read works by Carl Jung.
    Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who founded analytical psychology.
    I doubt anyone here is qualified to "interpret" someones dreams.

    Believing in ghosts and ghoulies is for snowflakes.
    I doubt there are any snowflakes here.
